Inside the Brazilian embassy

Journalist Esteban Felix is there.

Soldiers bark like dogs, meow like cats and crow like roosters just as my REM cycle gets going and I'm jolted awake almost nightly.

Troops last week blasted us with music from 1:30 a.m. until 7 a.m. The playlist included the grating Spanish ballad "Two-legged Rat," an accordian-laced tirade against an ex-boyfriend made famous by Mexican singer Paquita La del Barrio. Its lyrics begin, "Filthy rat, crawling animal, scum of all life ..." and it got worse from there.

That was a rough night.


Nell 3:05 PM  

Gen. Vasquez said the sonic assault was to celebrate Armed Forces Day.

But it's not a military coup. Nuh uh.

What a lovely example our own government set with a similar assault on the Vatican's embassy in Panama in 1989.
